All White on the Night


The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge this week is "white".  I had this white mirror from my local Swedish furniture superstore kicking around in my studio for a couple of years and I sensed that this challenge was the one to finally bring it's waiting to an end! :) We all have white things in our stash, even if it's just plain white card, so why not enter the challenge and you could be the winner of a $50 voucher to shop at Simon Says Stamp.

My frame was roughly 10" square.  I started by cutting an 8" square of cardstock from the Laboratorie card pad, cutting a 4" square out of the middle so that the mirror could be seen, and fixed it to the frame.  I cut strips from the black ruler design in the same pad and used them as a surround for the central mirror, using my Tim Holtz craft knife to mitre the corners.

I used Commute tissue tape as a border to the cardstock panel, again mitring the corners.  As a final step, I went crazy with French Industrial salvage stickers - they are another thing that has been eying me up across my craft room for far too long and I felt their time had finally come :)




Supplies I used included:


Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
